The Lake District National Park Authority is seeking to set up a forum to help manage land access better.
It has advertised for seven volunteers who can help formulate future planning decisions in a bid to work out the best method to handle right of way issues and other matters.
Those who join may be able to influence policy in a manner that is beneficial for those looking to bring a trekking pole
and other walking gear
to enjoy the countryside of England's largest national park.
Access and recreation developer for the authority David Switzer said: "We would particularly like to appeal to anyone prepared to devote some time to making this outstanding landscape more accessible and enjoyable for all."
The establishment of the forum comes at a time when the national park may be about to extend its boundaries.
A public consultation on four proposals to extend the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales national parks was launched by Natural England last month and will last until March 18th.
This could see the Orton Fells moved into either area.
